Presented by TAP Committee

Join the AIA Columbus Technology in Architectural Practice Committee for a facility tour at Scientific Expert Analysis (SEA)!

SEA is a forensic engineering firm whose team of fire investigators, metallurgists, chemists, industrial hygienists, and engineers analyzes events like roller-coaster failures and high-rise fires to determine the root cause. (Envision a real-world “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” team crossed with the NTSB and the Consumer Product Safety Commission.)

Designed by Lupton Rausch Architecture and Interior Design, SEA’s sleek corporate campus encompasses 13 acres and 106,000 square feet of specialized laboratories for chemical and fire/explosion materials testing, bio-dynamics simulations, vehicle testing, a dedicated candle laboratory, and highly collaborative offices. This tour will showcase how visioning for the future is vital for retaining and attracting top industry talent—and how collaboration across related industries, including design, construction, commercial furniture, technical specialists, and client industry gurus, helps everyone succeed.

Driving Park Library Tour


Join the Technology in Architectural Practice Committee as we tour Driving Park library branch, designed by NBBJ.

Driving Park is the first newly built branch library in the Columbus Metropolitan Library’s 20/20 vision plan – their first major facilities overhaul in 25 years. Library’s, as an institution, are faced with the ever increasing challenge of maintaining relevance in a context where our time is scarce, information is everywhere, learning is ever more collaborative, and technology is constantly changing. The new 15,000 square foot design aims to address the challenge of what it means to be a library in the information age, but it is also tasked with providing a community with a much-needed catalyst for solidarity and positive change. Come learn why Driving Park Branch is a great case study to learn how libraries can be a relevant and active participant in connecting a community, inspiring innovation and disseminating knowledge.
